National Sew A Jelly Roll Day!

This past Saturday we celebrated the first National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!

I decided to get some Quilting friends together and put them to work making Jellyroll quilts for charity.

We rent a room at our local public library and sew there every month.
I provided some refreshments and the ladies each brought something to share.
No Jellyroll event would be complete without Jelly Donuts and Jelly Beans!

Moda fabrics kindly donated 14 jelly rolls.

I didn’t snap a picture of my display fast enough and those rolls disappeared faster that the donuts!

We had so much fun sewing …

And chatting …

But also getting the job done!

Some got very creative!

Some quilt tops were finished …

And others will be finished at home and brought back next month when we each decide where our quilts are being donated.

We had a great time and I can’t wait to see all the completed quilts!

I wonder what we can come up with for next year!

Happy Quilting!

Pillow Love!

Remember the beautiful pillow that Sharon from Patches Indooroopilly in Australia made for us last year?

Well, she found out that I wasn’t sharing and was worried about Mary not having a pillow so she did this!

She made another beautiful pillow but this time it’s for Mary.
It’s made using our new Frolic fabrics that will be shipping to shops later this month.

I absolutely love the purple accent piping.
And lets not forget the cute zipper in the back!

Sharon knows how to make a pillow … it’s perfect and adorable!

Thanks for another beautiful pillow Sharon. It’s loved and this one IS going to Mary! (wink wink)

Happy Quilting!
